My friend sent me message like this:

He: "Hi, how are you"

Me: "I'm fine, thank you. What about you?"

He: I see television

Me: Are you watching television? nice, I hope that you enjoy of that.

Me: Actually I don't understand a lot in football...

By the way I would like to get your feedback on the rest of this conversation as I mentioned above, because I have some doubts about some things that I marked as you can see in the text. Thanks


"What about you?" is fine.

Him saying "I see television" is plain wrong, it's "I'm watching television".

"I hope that you enjoy of that." is wrong, that "of" doesn't belong here. Also, the "that" after the "hope" can be optionally dropped.

That "in" in "Actually I don't understand a lot in football." should be "about". There seems to be a short pause between "actually" and "I", so a comma should go between them.

  • Thank you very much for your comment. Just to be clear with one of your things, Do you mean that I should say "I hope you enjoy that"? – Judicious Allure Oct 17 '15 at 17:14
  • And in addition I meant to ask which time is used when we are talking about "enjoy". Should it be "I hope that you are enjoying"? – Judicious Allure Oct 17 '15 at 17:16
